By default, Google Chrome does not run extensions in Incognito mode because they could potentially compromise your privacy. But, if you’d like to give an extension permission to work in private browsing mode, it’s easy to do. Here’s how.
- Click on Chrome’s menu icon and select More tools.
- Then, click on Extensions to list all the extensions you installed.
- Click on the extension you want to run while browsing in private mode.
- Then hit the Details button.
- Scroll down to Allow in incognito.
- Slide the slider to the right to enable this option.
The next time you open an Incognito tab, your extension should be there waiting for you. You probably shouldn’t enable every extension you have. There’s a reason Chrome disables them after all. However, for the few that you really need and trust, feel free to turn them on.
